Imperial War Museum

The Imperial War Museum is really one of a kind in London. Its focus is primarily set on conflicts involving Britain and those in the Commonwealth, from the start of the 20th Century until the present day. It aims to ‘bring alive’ the experience of living through modern war, by putting on an ongoing mix of exhibition material, archives, events and educational programmes.


There are four other Imperial War Museum’s dotted around the country, although the London site remains the central hub. It was opened in 1917 and originally located in the Crystal Palace, before being moved to its current location in Lambeth Road. It remains a popular destination for school outings, offering the perfect way to complement their history studies.
